Graphic Design is visual communication and visual problem solving. This kind of visual communication can be found printed on a poster, a bag of chips, a can of soda, on the display of your laptop, or anything out in the real world or digital realm. You may not realize it now, but Graphic Design is all around you. You see as many as 5,000 advertisements a day. That means, you see Graphic Design more than 5,000 times a day, because advertising is just one medium in which you will find Graphic Design. Graphic Design can be artistic, illustrative, systematic and even simple. Ultimately though, it is up to you, the designer, to problem solve and find with the most effective solution. Our Graphic Design Program is NASAD accredited.
The Graphic Design curriculum embraces and integrates art, advertising and communication. The program at UCO has grown into the largest program between Kansas City and North Texas. It has truly become a center of excellence at UCO.
